Getting around

Cheapest way to get to Habarana would be by public Transport(Train/Bus) However ( other than for individual Travellers ) this mode of transport could be time consuming and inconvenient. Specially for Family/Group travel, recommend travel by Car or Van. On settling down at Upie's Folly., to get around, use of Three Wheelers ( Known as Tuk Tuks ) would be cheap and available in plenty. If you do not have your own vehicle, cars /vans could be hired from Habarana. To visit the National Wild Life parks ,a 4 W/Drive vehicle is necessary and that too can be hired from Habarana

Bungalow Staff is available 24/7 to greet Guests on arrival and during their stay & are Very conversant in English, Sinhalese & Tamil.

Many Travellers have lodged at "Upie's Folly " at Habarana to branch off into day trips to many places of Tourist interest & get back to base at night & continue with their errands the following day eliminating the hassle of finding new place to lodge.
